Abu Dhabi: Cylingas’ modular petroleum regeneration and processing plant in Fujairah is now 50 per cent complete, the company announced on Tuesday, adding that there has been lost time reported.

Cylingas, a subsidiary of Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC), signed an agreement with Pyramid Engineering in June last year, committing to design, fabricate, install, inspect, test, paint and commission 20 above-ground tanks and an associated piping system within the new plant terminal, as well as connecting pipelines to the port of Fujairah jetty.

The plant has a processing capacity of 7,500 BPD (barrels per day) while the storage tank terminal has a capacity of 101,000 cubic metres, making it a significant third party contract for Cylingas.

The Pyramid Engineering job is Cylingas’ first independent project as the company aims to establish itself as a valued service provider to the industry and a revenue-making business for Enoc.

Cylingas is undertaking the mechanical and piping requirements for the tanks, including an aluminium dome with internal floating and cone roofs.

With tanks ranging from four to 29.5 metres in diameter and from five to 20.5 metres in height, the total storage capacity is 101,000 cubic metres for handling naphtha, diesel, gas oil, fuel oil, kerosene, slop and water.
